Mike Cannon’s Life Begins
From humble beginnings bemusing his classmates at Tappan Zee high school to headlining at the infamous Comedy Cellar in New York City—Mike Cannon has well-earned his burgeoning comedic gem status. Cannon’s freewheeling autobiographical quips surface his woes of a long term relationship with his high-school sweetheart, recent fatherhood, his neurosis and an internal sinister dialogue he intelligently (and irreverently) distills on the mic.
Like most comedians who suddenly appear in mainstream, he steadily cut his teeth for years before, crafting his act and his own style enduring a legion of smoke and beer fragranced basements and open mics.
Now a touring act and fixture of New York City’s comedy scene, Cannon’s uproarious debut comedy album “I Think It Just Kicked In” was released in 2017, debuting at #1 on the iTunes comedy chart and #7 on the Billboard comedy charts, with over 4 million streams on Pandora.
Cannon’s comedic timing parallels the timing of his career choices. He sensibly dropped his debut album when he was ready, after years of milling his material, and sparring growing pains—now the acclaim is respectfully due. He has since garnered numerous appearances on TV and several Sirius/XM Radio shows including The Jim Norton and Sam Roberts Show, Barstool Sports Radio, The Bonfire on Comedy Central Radio, Bennington and tons of popular podcasts including one of his own – the Irish Goodbye Podcast.
Cannon is now an undeniable talent that has found his home on prominent comedy stages.
Now rubbing elbows with some of comedy’s finest, in January 2020 he independently released his first comedy special “Life Begins” on his YouTube channel. He’s arrived. His impeccably-timed emerging narrative features vignettes by NYC comedy legends, including Collin Quinn, who interject their humorous acrimony towards rising Cannon. After watching, it’s clear the kid is ripe and a stone’s throw away from the masses.
